With Valentine’s Day on the horizon it got us thinking, what is the one gift that would make any single gal’s heart go pitter pat? - writes Chemistry.com
Tender loving care from a guy who is highly aware of a woman’s feeling and needs? So here’s the list for Top Ten Cities to Find a Sensitive Man.
You might be surprised to learn about certain places, or - not. When we reviewed the list among each other - the gals at M. Silver Associates - we thought that some of the places didn’t make sense, except for a few, like Pompano Beach, Greater Fort Lauderdale - with which we mutually agreed on, because many of us have been there.
But then again - how would we know unless we were single and living in those cities? As for New York City, we wish there were more men in general, because according to Politics Daily (Huffington Post) New York is paradise – for men.
What do you think? Do you live in one of these cities? Have you ever been to Pompano Beach in Florida (#1 on the list)?
Have you dated one of these sensitive fellows (or are you a sensitive man)? Share your opinions in the comments below!
We have arrived on Foursquare.com.
And the first thing we did is to compile two long lists for the places we know very well - New York City and Greater Fort Lauderdale (yes - because we live, work and some of us were even born here…)
Those lists are easy to find on our Foursquare page, they are called: The Best of New York City and The Best of Greater Fort Lauderdale. It’s a mix of all the best that we found for ourselves, friends and family from spas, hair salons and hotels to restaurants, lounges, dance clubs and shopping sites! Cocktails we like, quick bites we take, fashion boutiques we visit - we’re revealing our secret spots of fun and pleasure in the city we enjoy when we do not work.
If you feel like we are missing something, please add-on! And don’t forget to check-in on Foursquare and let us know what you thought of the place we recommend.
Look forward to foursquare-friend you!
Yes, we’ve been there, we’ve done it, and we highly recommend, if you’re going to be in Greater Fort Lauderdale area in February.
